The printed logo dial variant of the first Grand Seiko would appear to have been manufactured alongside the early carved logo dial watches. From a detailed study of the examples of this reference that have come to the market over the last 5 years, it would seem that they only date from the first quarter of Grand Seiko “First” production, with watches seen with caseback serial numbers indicating production in April, May, and June 1960.

Print logo dial “Firsts” are extremely rare, with very few examples ever having come to market – in fact, over the last half decade, we have seen fewer than 10 examples appear on the market, or be shared by collectors.
